of san francisco yesterday. today it's cool. you will feel the difference. 13 degrees cooler in san francisco but not shabby. 70. i have your full forecast coming up. >> good morning. i think you might have driven through this, this morning, roberta, westbound yerba buena island and fremont street. the right lane is closed for construction until 5:00. no major delays though. bay bridge quiet off to a great start out of oakland into san francisco. for an entire month an email scam grew more and more destructive at one bay area university. only on "5" reporter andria borba shows us how the breach was detected and why thousands of employees have reason to panic reporter: >> with one click of a mouse they apparently sent out w2 forms for thousands of employees reporter: 3,000 employees with the academy of art are wondering how bad the damage s kpix 5 obtained a copy of this letter dated april 13 informing
employees of the breach. >> we are dealing with a sophisticated international internet fraud and we're doing everything we can. >> reporter: on march 4, someone in hr received an email that looked like it was from an administrator with the academy of art. the address looked legit but it wasn't. the email had been spoofed. >> someone should have looked at the letter closely. people who deal with sensitive information should have training in it. >> reporter: it wasn't detected until april 5. that's when an irs told an employee who tried to file their taxes that it was already filed. >> reporter: this person signed up for years of monitoring in the wake of the breach. he doesn't know if his return is already in a criminal's hurricanes after filing on
march 20. >> no one will know for sure until my tax return is supposed to come back. experion doesn't even know. there's a lag time. >> reporter: the academy of art is working with the fbi to trace it and the master minds behind it. we wanted to know if the person responsible for falling for that bogus email was still working with the academy of art. has that employee been fired? that's information that i am not at liberty to discuss with you. that's handled internally. >> reporter: andria borba, kpix 5. >> the offer of credit monitoring is two years but irs returns can be altered for seven so academy of art says it will help employees if anything suspicious happens seven years out a criminal investigation is launched against theranos. they built a $9 billion business on its blood testing technology. the justice department has serious questions about whether
it actually works. right now, theranos is not facing formal charges but their lab could be shut down in newark depending what they find. they proposed banning the owner for two years from the tech industry. the initiative was inspired by this crash in san francisco's union square back in november. under the current rules, the chp only inspects a sample bus from each fleet. that means roughly 70% of tour buses are not inspected. the new legislation passed a hurdle monday and now goes to the appropriations committee for more frequent inspections. a broad daylight bike theft, joe vazquez with the video. >> reporter: the surveillance video begins with a man in a trench coat and cain limping down the 400 block of valencia. he walked up to a bicycle,
pulls a power saw from his bag, and the sparks begin to fly. the ear splitting grinding seems to go on forever. people walk casually by most never even looking his direction. finally the thief cuts through the lock, walks the bike down the sidewalk and ride away. >> bold. i mean, that's like a bold move. >> reporter: the bike belongs to julia robertson of berkeley who was out on friday night. she locked it up around 7:00 and walked inside. and during the middle of the show she was at, she and the other audience members heard a loud noise coming from outside. >> it sounded like grinding. it was a grinder. he was grinding away. didn't take long. >> reporter: what did you think at the time when you heard the noise? >> honestly, i had this weird thought that maybe i hadn't locked the bike to the bike rack and so i was worried, obviously. but when i heard that weird noise i didn't think of jumping up and running out to look for my bike. so when i went outside, the bike rack was there but my bike
was not there. it was gone. >> reporter: what shocked and disappoints julia and anyone who has seen the video -- >> the people walked by, completely. >> reporter: -- is that no one stopped to help -- except for one lady. she said something to the thief but by then, he was leaving. >> she did what she could. >> reporter: joe vazquez, kpix 5. >> julia reported the stolen bike to police. the man with the trench coat, cain and new bike is on the loose. the bike is worth about $1,200. it is amazing though a lot of people walked by and didn't look to see. that's a loud noise. >> it's a horrifying story in the east bay where we have many triathletes and very expensive bikes because you race, now this as well, kenny, too, $6,000 bikes easily, okay? i have a friend who was riding in the hills of oakland, he is a firefighter, a van knocked him off his bike, stole his wife and he had to walk for miles to a fire department station actually. but this is what people are doing just to get the bikes
because they know they're worth money. it's horrible, it really is. >> all right. let's talk about the heatup. >> we had half a dozen record highs yesterday across the bay area, and today it will be delightful as far as your numbers are concerned but we'll cool down considerably. here's the view of the shark tank in san jose. yeah, disappointing loss in overtime yesterday. but we'll get them back the kings in game 3 tomorrow night! you want to go? >> yeah! >> all right. temperatures 48 santa rosa, 60 san francisco, 53 in livermore. good morning, everyone. numbers will not break any records today. we are talking about 60s, 70s at the beaches. 80s in the eastern portion of the bay area. 60s, 70s to the north. we'll talk about the pollen report coming up next time around. >> good morning. we have a couple of things brewing out there now. the bay bridge so far is an

want for our children and our grandchildren. >> reporter: for the republicans if donald trump can capture more than 50% of the statewide vote it puts him in position to win all of new york's 95 gop delegates. even a slip of the tongue during his speech in buffalo didn't seem to trip him up. >> i watched our police and our firemen down at 7-eleven down at the world trade center right after it came down and i saw the greatest people i have ever seen in action. >> reporter: ted cruz who criticized trump's new york values is bracing for a tough day while insisting he is the best bet for the gop to win the white house. >> if we unite, we will win the general, we will beat hillary clinton and we will turn this country around. >> reporter: the polls show trump has more support in his native new york than ted cruz and john kasich combined. brian webb for cbs news. >> the polls close in new york at 6 p.m.

players are equally as able to carry the team. it was a fabulous game. we loved every minute of it. >> it was a little rough but they pulled it off. >> steph wanted to sit out one more game, we can still do it. >> yeah, man. i said let me set down one more in houston and then we go game 4 in houston. >> reporter: christin ayers, kpix 5. >> looking ahead, games 3 and 4 will be in houston april 21 and 24 and if necessary game 5 and 7 will be in oakland. 4:42. the death toll continues to rise in ecuador as rescuers continue searching for anyone buried in the rubble. we're there as aid arrives for thousands next. ,, ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
